Eight new jobs created by organisation with exciting vision for West Cumbria

23rd January 2023

An initiative which will create more than 700 jobs across West Cumbria through collaboration is creating eight new jobs within its own organisation.

iSH (the Industrial Solutions Hub), which will create opportunities for businesses and organisations to collaborate, enhance skills and capabilities, and regenerate communities, is looking to build its delivery team.

Latest job opportunities with iSH include: Regional Representative, Operations Director and Investment Lead.

There will also be roles for a Senior Project Manager, Project Controls Officer, Business Liaison Officer, Community Liaison Officer and a Project Management Apprentice.

These latest positions come on the back of iSH’s recent and first appointments which were for the roles of Office Manager and Education Liaison Officer which have both been filled by candidates from the local area.

John Maddison, iSH Managing Director said: “We are into an extremely exciting phase of iSH’s development and to deliver our ambitions for the region we need to attract the right people into some key positions within the organisation.

“As well as bringing the skills and experience needed for the roles we are looking for people who share our passion for making things happen and our ethos of making a positive difference for people and communities across West Cumbria.

“Everyone employed by iSH will have collaboration at the core of what they do.  They will work with people and organisations that already exist in the region, looking to strengthen what we already have, filling gaps, attracting inward investment and exporting our excellent capability.

“We are delighted with the appointments we have made so far which are already bringing that energy and enthusiasm, as well as expertise, to deliver our programme of creating jobs and regenerating communities through collaboration.

“We are now looking forward to the next recruitment phase which will take our team up to 10 to enable us to achieve our shared goals at pace and build on what has already been achieved by focusing on the three core components of growth – collaboration, innovation and diversification.

“We are also pressing ahead with initiatives which are bringing opportunities to businesses and organisations in the region, increasing capability, and creating openings for people living in the area, benefiting our communities and the environment.”

An iSH Enterprise Campus (iEC) on Leconfield Industrial Estate, Cleator Moor, is part of the organisation’s future development with refurbishment work set to start on the site which is owned by Copeland Borough Council.
